HIV & Millennials Panel, Nov 30th

Like other high-risk populations, the Millennial Generation is at great risk of falling victim to a new epidemic which poses to shift attitudes towards HIV in a life-threatening direction. This is the epidemic of ambivalence.
As part of World AIDS Day, a panel of HIV educators and medical experts has been assembled to speak to the mental, physical and even spiritual threats that persist around HIV and AIDS infection. ASU invites you to join the panel discussion Nov. 30th 2015 in McDaniel Hall rm 101.
